Original Concepts
Chosen Concept

Before I could make the buck for the clay I had to draw the model in orthographic  perspective and project the curves for the 5 sections.
Making the Buck

To make the buck I attached 2 sheets of MDF together with the side profile drawn on them. Then I cut it out,  filed, and sanded it down smooth. 
Preparing the Buck

Once the profiles were done I plotted them out and secured them in place. Then I could add the foam and begin covering it with the clay. 
Side note * Due to Covid and working from home we had to create our own clay ovens and I had a lot of fun with that*

After each profile was covered in clay it was time to have some fun. Using a variety of clay tools and my 5 section cutouts I carved each side down to match my concept drawing.
